Excerpts from Peter Forgacs's recent production Picturesque Epochs (Private Hungary 18) and from Gabor Body's iconic video art magazine Infermental 3 (1984) feature family movies and experimentations by underground artists, showing how filmmakers in Hungary engaged with the camera to record personal memories or to create innovative visual media during the Cold War.

Following the screenings, Forgacs will be present for a Q&A.

This screening complements the exhibition Promote, Tolerate, Ban: Art and Culture in Cold War Hungary, a collaboration with the Getty Research Institute that is on view at the Wende Museum of the Cold War in Culver City from May 20 to August 26, 2018.
